Gleason had a wonderful orchestra. My mother had some of his albums. They were full of wonderfully lush, romantic and beautiful arrangements.

And, of course, since Perry is looking at his national propects, he hasn't affected much change, either. A property tax mess, educational chaos, wasted tax dollars, misappropriated funds, unorganized immigrant issues, and unfunded mandates. Unfortunately, it sounds as if he'll fit well in Washington.

No. I couldn't watch it anymore than I could the Democrats having their "lovefest" last week.

This is a film I love. Primarily I enjoy it for Donald Crisp's performance. He rules with an iron fist and a warm heart. The family structure precedes what will follow in the Cavalry pictures. My favorite scene (at least one of them) is when after Crisp has the blow up with his sons the only one lef...

"The Rockford Files" is my favorite theme. Mike Post my be the best TV composer.

Also thought "The Equalizer" had a pretty cool theme.

Ken: You're talking two different parties. Democrats aren't going to vote for Powell for the reasons you note. Republicans aren't going to vote for O'Bama because he's liberal and relatively inexperienced. I don't think either party is going to throw somebody out there that will draw a big enough po...

The scene where the singers come around to sing to Maureen O'Hara is just lovely. The look on her face, thinking Wayne ordered it, is so warm. Wayne, looking embarassed because he didn't, is just as good. I even like the relationship between O'Hara and McLaglen is wonderful in its bizarre way.

If it was it must have been one of the most miserable failures. I think if you want to go that far then shouldn't there have been a lot more things happen that day.

Re: Get it right the first time . . .

Personally, I think the change has to start from inside . . . And you would be right. Until people decide to take repsonsibility for what they do and understand that actions have consequences nothing will change. People have to get past the thought that everyhting that is wrong is not somebody else...

Moira:

Such fine timing. Just last week I got Jack Benny's show on DVD from Netflix. Man, that was funny. One that was really good was Jack casting a show that would do his life story. I'm waiting on the other discs to follow.

Since classical music was brought up in this thread I thought I'd mention, just in case, that Mistislav Rostropovich died on Friday in Russia. One of the most renowned cellists he was also famous in my area as he lead the National Symphony Orchestra (Wash DC) for 15 years or so. Critics around here ...
